I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Impressive showing for a film that isn't on DVD, one that I'd never heard of before this started.

Not on DVD in the US, there's a PAL DVD out there.

Un homme qui dort is one of those films where every indication is that it should be a favourite, the themes and style are right up my alley, but even though I like it a lot and recognize its strengths I'm not as enamoured with it as others seem to be.

RESULTS UPDATE
Best Adapted Screenplay


Zero votes for The Parallax View, one vote for The Taking of Pelham One Two Three, and two votes for Young Frankenstein.

Yet another category that comes down to a battle between The Godfather: Part II and Un homme qui dort.
